“O tempora o mores” is a famous sentence by Cicero in his First Oration against Catiline.
It translates as “Oh the times! Oh the customs!”
In his opening speech against Catiline, Cicero deplores the viciousness and corruption of his age.
In this post I too rail against the viciousness of the age.
Or more specifically, The Age.
Today’s lead story, taking up over half of a broadsheet page but with all of the intent of the grubbiest tabloid, was on Greg Norman’s marriage break up.
Is this truly the most pressing or interesting story in the world today?
Is it really news?
Do I really need to know?
Time to cancel the subscription, me thinks.
Sometimes you just need to remove the negatives from your life.
